A squad successfully placed a fire lane shooting just a machine gun (and retaining it's inherent firepower). Later in the MPh; the squad shot it's inherent firepower at a unit and cowered, marking the squad and the machine gun with a final fire counter. Does that final fire marker on the machine gun cancel the fire lane? If so, can you provide a reference (we didn't see it as canceled under the list of things that cancel a fire lane).

Thanks,
Brian

No, the Fire Lane is not concealed in this situation.

A9.223 gives the reasons that a firelane is canceled. Cowering/being marked with a Final Fire is not one of them. The firelane is maintained.

A7.9 Cowering affects all fire except that from a SMC, berserk or Fanatic unit, Fire Lane, IFE, Canister, Aircraft, British Elite and First Line units, Finns, Sniper, ordnance, OBA, or any form of vehicular fire...

Binchois, he was not SFFing his Inherent, but only FirstF it. I think the OP had it right.

Thanks! I had read the question wrong. But as you see above, caught the mistake and changed my answer (...though not quite fast enough for JR who scooped me by a second or two!)
